South American striker desperate for 'amazing' Old Trafford move

Published Add your comment

Manchester United target Angelo Henriquez says his protracted move to Old Trafford would be a 'dream come true'.

The Chilean teenager was in sparkling form for his country in the recent South American under 17 Championship and is being courted by a number of Europe's most prestigious clubs.

United, however, appear to have won the race for the 16-year-old striker after the Daily Mail claimed the Old Trafford club had agreed a first option to sign him from Universidad de Chile, which will expire in 2014.

Henriquez has since revealed his desire to sign professional terms with United and is hopeful a permanent deal can be struck between the Red Devils and his current employers.


"Of course it is amazing that a team like Manchester United have taken an interest in me. They are a huge team at a world level and playing for them would be a dream come true," Henriquez told Triunfo.

"I know that if I want to be a footballer, I have to be very professional and not get caught up in the parties or the gossip columns, besides I don't like that sort of thing,

"For now I am only thinking about my club, making my debut and performing; because Manchester United have told me that I have to start getting experience to make the move to England."

The starlet has already been pictured with Sir Alex Ferguson after a trip to United's Carrington training base and looks set to finalise a move to Old Trafford in the summer.
